Weekly Round-up – tumblr edition #6

Dear Readers,

I have had to labour very hard this week, trying to get a number of interesting tumblr links together. That is not due to a lack of noteworthy posts on tumblr (blasphemy to even think so…), but to my short absence over the weekend until Tuesday. The amount of stuff that slips through when you don’t keep close tabs on tumblr, is staggering… And often the Richard Armitage tag is no great help, either, because not everyone on tumblr tags diligently including the lazy writer of this post… Undoubtedly, my two fellow rounder-uppers – Agzy and Arkie they sound like twins, don’t they? – will have much more RA goodness in store for you. Don’t forget their Best-ofs on all things blogging at Iwanttobeapinup and fanfiction at TheArkenstone.

Nonetheless – here’s the best of week 6 from our sisters (and brothers) on tumblr. I hope you enjoy!!

Round up header 6

  1. Sleepy-times in the Durin household
  2. Brilliant little comic by barracutie – even if you don’t ship Bagginshield
  3. Thirsty Armitage plus a gratuitous bonus at the end…
  4. Another brilliant use of graphics to characterise Thorin. Literally literally.
  5. A blast from the past in a new crop. This really hit me HARD!
  6. Circusgifs confesses in gifs. I think we’d all sign that confession with our heart’s blood…
  7. Let’s focus on the details here. WARNING: Will hit you right in the bellybutton
  8. Richard’s early stint on Spooks
  9. Concentrating on the essentials. Dof at its finest. An edit I really like.
  10. From Mezzmerizedbyrichard’s hand porn archive
  11. Evankart’s amazing Thorin pictures all in one post
  12. Can you imagine Gisborne using 21st century technology? To hilarious effect!

PS: A little question – are my link teasers too cryptic? Do you want me to be more detailed in the description so you know what you are clicking on? Let me know in the comments, please ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. What a wonderful collection, as always! There’s something about tumblr where you only ever get to capture a moment. It just goes so fast and often once an image does the rounds it never really pops up again. Having said that, isn’t that one of the most alluring characteristics of tumblr?
    Ps. I’m terribly jealous of all those talented artist who can draw and paint! The fanart is often of very high quality and it’s a pleasure to get to see it. It’s like stepping in to our own little art gallery ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • Oh yers, the fast changing dash is very exciting. But it can be frustrating, too, when you are looking for a specific picture or gif or post. It’s impossible to find things again… or time-consuming…
      I agree on the fanart – there are some *very* talented people out there. And it is nice of them to share their talents with us.


    • That’s my way of thinking, Agzy – I like the tease and the suspense. But then I thought that maybe some people would rather like to know what they are going to see before they click the link… Ah sure, it’s just a click and a quick look. It’s different when it is about whole blogposts or fanfic where I might want to decide before hand whether it is worth my while to click… Thanks for feedback! x


  2. A great round-up Guylty. Guy’s Texts From Last Night is one of my favorite Tumblrs, and I love those flat stomach close-ups. My preference, flat stomach, no crazy six pack action.


    • The belly – oh Cod, I nearly hyperventilated when I saw that post. And strangely, it wasn’t entirely sexy, there was something else in there… Yeah, I am not that big into six-packs myself. Hard muscles is very uncomfortable. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. A lovely collection again, including a few I’ve not seen. I admit to staying out of the RA tag as of late, relying on my friends amazing reblogging skills for various reasons. That said, your tagging is perfect, and STILL wish to dip my tongue in that sacred crevice.

    And somewhere I have a piece of artwork, depicting a knight who has a passing resemblance to my darling, with an Iphone and a dragon looking over his shoulder.

    *whistles innocently*


    • Ooooh, I’d love to see *that* piece of artwork!!!
      The RA tag is not something I visit on a regular basis. Although it has calmed down again, so it is safe! PS: Which sacred crevice is that?


          • I just created it a few weeks back. I did it in a stealthy manner as I”m not really sure what I want or need to do with it yet. I’m not sure that the world needs yet another Richard Armitage shrine… and while I’d like to think I have deep thoughts, I don’t think the world is ready for a Deep Me.

            Although if you scroll back a few entries, you will see the horrible deep freeze we here in the south had. They are predicting ice again for us mid-week.

            Dof – Document of fuzz????

            Department of Felt.

            Department of Feels????

            Division of Fuc…. nevermind…


  5. Can I just say that I’m quite proud of myself for knowing what “dof” is in link ix?! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Thanks for the list Guylty (and the mentions!)


    • I should hope that everybody who is familiar with Guylty knows what dof is ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll be testing readers, soon ๐Ÿ˜‰
      And credit back to you for some great posts, Mezz!


  6. Love the teasers as I like to guess at the post. Are you using the bookmark function in Xkit to go back to posts? The Tumblr community puts out so much volume one could do a roundup post of the best posts of the day! Cheers!


    • That’s a great tip, Sahra. I need to update Xkit to do that. Usually what I do is that I copy the links into the tumblr round-up as soon as I see them.
      And yes, one could do a daily round-up *weeps* – too much!!!
